UTG limps, Fairly Aggressive kid pops it to 450 at 50/100, i looked down at AKo and r/r to 1525 off my 4100ish stack. UTG and kid insta fold, and i take it down.
Next serious hand i play was my bust hand:
Blinds 75/150, Mid position makes it 450, then very aggressive guy, play any 2 cards re pops to 1450 on the button. Im in the SB and get JJ, shiib. Feeling this is a pretty good spot to get it in. I think for a while, then shove my chips in, i hav around 4600ish total. BB insta says something like ' ill have to have a look now'. I knew at this point, this wasn't a good sign. As he was one of those guys that looks at his cards straight away and had been all the way through. Anyways he thinks for about 10 seconds before declaring 'all in'. Im like fk my entire life, why does he have to find it there. I find myself a perfect spot, and he somehow finds it. Other 2 guys folded. The button guy did show 88 but couldn't call obviously. He would have probs called me though as he was terrible but had a lot of chips.
Flop comes X X A. Im like gglife.
So that was just really unlucky, and if he doesnt find AA there, im upto either 7k without showing a hand, or upto around 10.5k if the 88 Button guy calls me. But nvm, thats how it goes sometimes. I then went to watch the rest of the footy, and just as the final whistle goes i see Jones stand up. Hes out, he got it in with JJ vs A10 and A peeled on the flop. We got an amazing DTD Deluxe Burger and then decided to make the trek back home after saying our goodbyes to the gang. Not sure how Trigg did, he had a few chips when we left. Probs spewed them all though as he was smashed.
Was going to be sorting my room and cleaning the flat today and 2mo, but i really cant be arsed and just guna put in a sesh online. Reg'd from 12-5 atm and might play later. Will see how i get on. 2mo, i will have to just sort the place out, cant wait..not.
Update sooon, lattttttters, gl.

Started out today with the intention of playing loads of 180s, but i reg'd for some and they were taking forever to fill up, so i thought fk it and reg'd for loadsa MTTs. Pretty glad i did now. Must have cashed for over $1k today so its all good.
Played a load of torns on Ipoker, FTP and odd few on Stars and Party. The few 180s and other stars torn went abs terrible. But was doing pretty good in a few Ipoker torns. Ended up getting it in for a big pot in one with 20 left with 7s vs 3s, flop came 10 3 3, which was a pretty bad flop for me. Then another one, i came 13th ran AQ into AK and AJ into KK. So i ran pretty bad there and wasnt too delighted. Was still in this one that i won though. Started to get a stack from like 35 out, and then just built from there. Didnt really do much on the FT, just maintained my stack till 3-4 left. Then started to play more agg, and doubled up with JJ vs K7 for big pot. Then won HU after shoving on X X 10 Q board with AQ, he called with AK and i held, shibbbbbb. Pretty happy iv finally taken one down on there after so many nearly in the last week or so. Got a 2nd in an $11 KO on FTP also today, was only like $350 ftw, but wudnt hav minded taking it down. Got it in HU with AQ vs K8, 8 on river for him though. Then i ran A9 into AK and it was over.
The win below:
Its amazing how bad most of the players are in Ipoker, im going to continue to grind the MTTs hard and search for some more wins. Going to cut down torns on Stars and FTP etc and try shib it on here. Will only be playing 2mo though for a few days, as gota start packing stuff in the flat and then clean the place up ready to move out. Not looking forward to that but its gota be done. If alls done by Saturday, il prob put in a sesh, but will see how things go.
lets gogogogogo, gl all.

After my sesh on Fri night, i decided on Sat/Sun i was going to grind some 180s. Couldn't be bothered with having a crappy Sunday playing donkaments. So i played loads of 180s between 12-7 on Sat Night/Sun morning. Reg'd for them til 4 and was 8-9 tabling at most at anytime. Didnt wna be playing too many. Anyways, started off pretty terrible as every session does. But in the end i managed to make a decentish profit. Getting a 1st/2nd and a few more odd FT's and ITM's. I seem to do really well getting to last 30 or so. Then get it in for hugee pots and lose. But obviously can't run good at all those 60/40s or 70/30s. But just gota take advantage when i win the huge pots, and go onto win the damm things. This night i finished around $320 to the good.
Saturday didnt go quite aswel, i did the same kinda schedule. Dont think i played as many as i did the night before. The only real result i can remember was a 2nd, but i ended up around $70+ for the day. So +$400 in the two days, which is ok and just keeps my roll around what i feel comfortable with.
After the Sun Night/Mon morn seshion on 180s, i decided to play a load of MTTs too. Was gna play some stuff on all sites, inc Ipoker,but cos its shit it decides to D/c like every 2 minutes so i unreg from everything else. I was still in a torn but with like 50 left on there, i eventually got back onto it and was in BB for 400 off my 720 stack, got it in and lost with 30 left. Kev at BlondePoker has told me to email them and will get compensated o the Buy in, so thats ok. The rest of the MTTs on Stars on FTP were going pretty well tbh, but i ended up bubbling about 4 of them, which would have been around $100 or something, but obviously gota play ftw. Ended up going deep in the 10.15 $5 rebuy on Stars though. Was sitting around 8/20 with about 120k when i ran QQ into AA he had me coverd by about 6k and i was out in 20th for some ridic small amount, fk my life etc. Just wna run good deep in a torn 1 timeeee, then build from there.
Just woke up around 2.30 am now, was going to get up and play some 180s, then maybe some MTTs later, but will probs just play a load of morning donkaments starting around 9 or something.
On other news moving outa this place on Sunday, going to start packing stuff and cleaning everything Fri/Sat so wont be playing much at all then. Going back to live with parents for a month till the new place is ready to move into which should balllllllllllin.
Not sure what to do whilst there, try and get a job for a month or try a grind some decent $$ playing 180s. Hmmmmmm, no idea!

I then reg'd for everything and was investing like $450 total, 1 time let me get a score. Got off to tez starts in the 2 Stars torns i was playing, getting it in with AA vs KJ and AK into KK in the first level or so and losing. So that wasnt ideal. The ipoker torns were going ok, and i started to get chips in one. It was the 6.45 $22 5k. Eventually about 9 i got to Final table after as crushing it from 25 in, and was 1/10. Then me and the guy in 2nd got in a huge pot. Blinds are 1200/2400, and he makes it 7200 in 2nd position. He has around 60k total and i have around 67k. Ive got QQ and make it 22400, it folds around to him and he insta moves in. I pretty much snap call and he has AK. Flop 9 6 2, im like plzzzz hold. Turn As. My life sucks, and im absolutely fuming. River bricks and im down to 6k. Move in next hand with my last 6.5k or so with 910c and called by KQ. Flop Q high and i brick out in another poor 8th for like $155. Im really pissed off and wonder why i cant win the 1 that really matters. 1st was like 1.5k and would have helped immensely for the roll. But the grind has only really begun, iv got all the 10-12 starts to play and need to get re-focused for them.
Im really annoyed, but play good and start to forget about that. Got stacks in a load of torns, but busted like 20th-40th wen 20 paid etc. Got some chips in this ridic turbo torn i reg'd for on Party, the $6 2k 6 max, first was like $600 with like 500 runners. Anyways, to cut a long story short, i busted 4th for $154, 88 vs A10. Only other torn i really had shots in i came like were like the 4k on Ipoker and 5k on Party. The 4k i busted 21st for some shite. Moved in on BB for from SB with 44 for like 28k at blinds 1.5/3k and he thought for ages then called with K10d for his torn life. wtttf. Flop bricks but as per the turn comes 10. My life sucks again. First again was over 1k but fk it.
Didnt really get deep in anything else tonight, cashed in a few but nothing to write home about. I invested like $520 and cashed for like $425. So again like yesterday,it could have been so much better, But then again could have gone ridic worse. So im only like $100 down for the day and i can still afford to carry on taking these kinda shots. If i totally brick it one day and lose like $400-$500 ill obviously like stated in other posts drop back down to the $4 180s on Stars. Really dont wna though and i feel im pretty close to getting some decent kinda scores.
Anyways must dash its 5am and havent eaten anything since the Salad earlier. Got a pizza in oven probably burning and fucking burnt my hand putting it in. Im running good at life stuff too! Duno what we are guna do about the washer, we're only here for another week or so, so we'll probs just try and survive on the clothes we've got.

Tues night, i just played a load of 180s on Stars, was playing pretty well and was hopeful of some results. I ended up busting loads of them around 20-35th and didnt cash in any. But didnt hurt the roll at all, as most of them are only the $4 ones and thats fkall.
Wed Night, decided to grow some balls and put in a full session of MTTs, i deposited $$ on Party and Ipoker ftmfw and was gna hit most of the stuff i could really. I ran bad at start depositing double what i wanted on Party, not sure how that happened. but it did. Nvm.
Started at like half 5 and reg til about 12. Got stacks in some early torns and everyone else was coming towards the end of the sesh so i unreg'd from stuff from like 10.30 onwards. Another reason was because i was deep in the 6k on Ipoker and had chips. I ended up getting it in with 4 left, with A3 vs A2. He obv hit the 2 on the river but nvm. Cashed for like $500 in that and about another $60 in sumat else. So not a bad day, but coulda been much better. 1st in the 6k was around 1.7k which would have been very sweet for my roll.So even though it coulda been better i was happy with the day and had made $$. I was looking forward to Thurs night and putting in another full sesh. Lets gogogogogogogogo
Thurs night, slept for soooooo long from like 8am til sum ridic time. Started to play at 10.15pm and reg for stuff til around 2am. Total $$ i was investing was around $350-$400. First 2 torns of the day went abs terrible, the $55 7.5k on Ipoker, i basically got it all in 3rd hand with AK vs AA, on K high flop. My life sucks, then insta on other table i bust out like 4th hand KK vs A5c all in pre. Wtf he was doing with A5 all in there, i hav no idea but its lolipoker and its standard. Anyways, thought this was pretty comedy, altho i was kinda fuming. Didnt let it effect me though and continued to grind hard. Towards the end of the sesh, i had stacks in like 3 torns on ipoker and things were looking hopeful. They were the $33 10k on Ipoker, $16.50 4.5k and the $7rebuy 5k. I finalled the 4.5k but busted out early with Aj vs KK. Couldnt really do much, i was SB with AJ and 38k. Blinds 2k/4k and 1 guy limps, i obv shib it in with less than 10 BBs here and the limper wakes up with KK. I basically draw dead on the K J X flop and im out for around $124. Oh wow i think. But im still deepish in the 5k and 10k with stacks in both. 1 time plzz.But i busted 33rd with 30 paid, for a huuuuuuge pot with JJ vs AQ in the 10k, Q str8 out, and i think fk my entire life. Still in the 5k though and have around 40k, i get blinds down and blinds are now 2.5k/5k with 15 left. I get KK on button, obv move in, BB thinks, then calls with AK, im like wtf u thinkin about. My life sucks and A str8 out and A on turn and im drawing dead. Out in 15th for $50, pretty terrible.
Thurs night could have been so much better though, so although im down around $200 on the night, im not too unhappy as if i ran better towards the end. The results could have been so much sweeter and a massive boost. But as i roll, it didnt happen and thats how MTT's go sometimes.
Had some degen bets on Wed Night, mainly all on Sweden, not really sure why. But they all lost and i busted the last $$ in my Stan James account.
PaddyPower account has been suspended as they want proof of ID, ffs. So much effort and i dont have a scanner or anything, so guna have to wait a few weeks b4 i can even touch that $$. Pretty ghey as i wanted to have a biggish bet on Croatia tonight and cba depositing on SJ account. But maybe thats a good thing and the Croats wont win.
Might have to support the Germans from now in. As ive got Germany in a sweepstake with mates and get around £80 if they win. Shib it. Although i wont mind if Spain or Croatia win it, cos that'd be huge for them.
Right, thats it for now. Will be grinding hard in next few days in search of some big results, if not, it'l be back to the 180s to grind grind grind. 1 time plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Laters, gl all.

Just ground it out in both pand eventually got a stack in both. The MSOP was ridic soft and was so comfortable jsut popping it evryhand accumalting a huge stack. I got to around 60k at one point then dropped back down. Then lost 1 huge hand AQ vs sb's reshove with A10. Board K 10 2 4 10 was good for him though. And i was down to 20kish. Then went ridic carddead and cudnt pop it evryhand as my stack was terrible. Eventually busted around 130th, but for so long it was looking good and was in top 10 for ages. Was also fuming half way thru after losing huge pot to go 3/4 of 70 in the 9.5k KO, with AQc vs 1010 Blind on Blind, so brudel.
Had a comedy small prop bet with Dave LeKnave Jones this morning. We played 4 $12 180s on Stars and 4 $11 90 manners on FTP. Person who cashed for most or best finishing position wins. Loser has to buy winner a load of shit from Costco, which we are going when it opens in like 2 hours. Its incred.
Brent coming over for the grind tonight which will be fun, and after il lolown his soul at Pro Evo
Just put some bets on for the Euro's, will post them up later. Nothing huge just small bets here and there for railing purposes and others for valooooooooo.
Thursday, 5 June 2008
Can only play on Stars and FTP atm, as im still awaiting the money from FTP to go through to my bank. Playing the MSOP $16.50 6 max tonight. I feel ther'l be a load of donks in this with no real idea for the 6 max game and will just be all round terrible. Hopefully i can get a nice run going in it and go deep once again. 1 time FTP.
Looking forward to this wknd, Brents coming over for a grinding sesh online and we are all gna generally lolown it. If not, ill just have to own him at Pro Evo after for srs wonga imo. We were going to go play pool and bet on loadsa shit, but thats not happening anymore so nvm.
Pretty bored right now, waiting for a torn or 2 to start and looking at the betting for Euro 2008 whilst playing the new SoccerManager game online that Scottc off Blonde set up.
Can't make any bets, because as i said waiting for $$ to go throught really.
Will post in the next day or so with updates.

- Brent, lets dooooooooooooo this, this wknd.
My MTT win below sennnnnnnnnnnnnnd. loldonkaments.
Tuesday, 3 June 2008
The reason i haven't blogged in so long is that i eventually went busto, bills and rents etc eventually caught up with me and i could no longer play poker on a regular basis. E.g smashing the Party/Ipoker torns ridic hard.
Loadsa people have been saying, why do you enver blog anymore, and i just say, because theres nothing to say and it'll be ridic boring to read. I no thats wrong, and i should just keep updated on my overall life, and if im playing anything at all, just to blog about it.
So...the other day i was pretty busto, and going to look for a job on Monday(Yesterday). LeKnave had just been shibbing me money to on Stars/FTP to play the odd torn here and there.
THEN he staked me for the MSOP $16.50 Buy in with 5318 runners, absoulely absurd amount of runners, and me and Jones were laughing at how big the field is and not really taking it seriously. Eventually i started to get some chips together, it was brudel. I was 1/44, 1/15, 2/9 etc. So chipleader for quite a while, i won my fair share of flips, which is what uve gota do to go deep in something like this. Eventually we were down to 4-5 players, i was gt'd a decent sum, and was up for winning this big time. 3-4 handed i was so card dead, couldn't find any spots, and blinds were ridic, i cudnt reshove with air, as i didnt really have that much fold equity. 3 handed i got it in with 77 vs K10, 10 str8 out, and i was out 3rd for 7k and change. Which at the start of the torn i wuda been delighted with, but was amazingly gutted i didnt take it down afterwards.
Screenshot of it below:
So even though i cashed for $7k, i had 2 ship LeKnave 3.5k of it for the stakng, which was pretty sick. But gotta thank him for staking me and gettin me back on track again. Also that night, not massive in comparison, he staked me to a load of 180s on Stars, and i made a profit of just over 1k. Which is sweet, having only played like 10 $4.40s and 9 $11s. Had to ship LeKnave half of that also, but im happy with a $4k night, and its start to build build build.
Past few days iv played some MTTs, maybe too much but im just happy to be back playing again. Only lost around $100-$150 after a few cashes, in last few days so nothing major on the BR.
Ive had to pay Jones the £400+ i owed him for some bills he recently paid, and iv gota catch up on latest rent. So after everythings paid, im left with just over £1k. So a roll of around $2k to play with.
Im planning to just grind the S*** outa some 180s on Stars to build my roll into a decent amount. Then start plying MTT's regularly again.
Hopefully i can stick at the 180s till we move into the new balla flat, then have a big enuf roll to go for it on the MTT scene. Will just be grinding a $500 roll on Stars for now and see what i can griiind it into.
Going to keep a bit of $$ on FTP for the rest of the MSOP Series, as although FTP wont let me run good again, i obviously enjoyed the torn and hope to ship it in another one of the torns.
3 big shouts for:
1)Middy(hitthehole, online): for staking me a while back to some 90 seaters on FTP, ran good in first load i played for him, then decided i would run amazingly bad when he staked me for a decent amount. Anyways, hes won 2 WSOP seats in last week or so. Have a ballin time, and ship home some crucial money plz.
2)LeKnave on the MTT challenge win, sennnd it. Win the next one too imo. Gl at DTD this wknd if you decide to go. Win it plz.
3)Horneris on getting back into the MTT scene and doing well recently. Also succeeding in your Betfair challenge,turning £500 into 3k. sennnnnnnnnnd.
Going to be having a few bets on Euro 2008 over next couple of days, so will probs post them up.
Will keep posted everyday or so.
lets doooooooooooooooo this 1 time.
